Home, Home in the Mountains
On our two-day excursion down to the Kenai Peninsula this weekend, I would have to say this was one of my favorite places we stopped to take pictures. If you are ever driving the scenic Seward Highway between Anchorage and Seward, make sure to stop and enjoy this cozy overlook on the banks of Lower Summit... Read More »

Alaskan Culture

Alaskan Culture
This is really odd. It’s practically 10:00pm and it’s still pretty light outside as I get ready for bed.

After returning from CAPTURE North Carolina, I headed out with my family to attend the Virginia FEW Conference in Brandy Station, Virginia.
